, the man who served as secretary for bill clinton. robert reich. and grover norquist, president of americans for tax reform. we're coming right back. >>> welcome back. something that very possibly could come up tonight is governor romney floating the idea of capping tax deductions at $17,000. would that effectively be a tax increase? and would it work to bring down the deficit? with us now robert reich who served as labor secretary under bill clinton and grover nor qui quist. >> he's made that commitment as has paul ryan and certainly the vast majority of republicans in the house. which is a commitment not to raise overall taxes. romney's committed to cutting all tax rates at least 20%. ryan and the house republicans want to go to a top rate of 25% corporate and individual. romney's made it clear. any changes are in the context of keeping overall taxes from going up and making sure the middle class doesn't get hit request higher taxes. it's not a tax increase, he's made that clear. >> mr. secretary, a lot of discussion about whether or not the wealthy or the middle class familie
four years, given what he was handed in this, when you heard bill clinton say that, bill clinton has not said that before. >> i could have done better. you could have done better. i think anybody who wasn't ideologically driven could have done better. >> what would you have done? >> sorry? >> the meaningful steps. >> what wouldn't you have done. >> we need jobs so therefore -- and we need exports so therefore the first thing you do is have the nlrb attack the number one exporter in the country on really preposterous grounds, then you in effect start yelling at business and threatening business and then you get on the tv and talk about las vegas and all of a sudden the hotel business dies. i mean, the answer is that we need leadership, not criticism. we need encouragement not discouragement and until that scenario changes i think the united states is quote/unquote, i hate to use this word, in a malaise. >> is that a function of new laws and legislation or a function of rhetoric? >> first of all it's both, okay, in other words, we hope that it's new laws. the reality is, it isn't new l
, and that makes it different this time because it's a lot of people still say -- you heard bill clinton, he put it in -- it's almost emblazoned now. >> four years ago, it deid feel different. >> now we are hearing that no one could have done better in job growth and that perception was supposedly different. we had people come in here that were thinking '80 was even worse. >> the new standard. we failed so this is good. >> the one thing that is helping the president is the rebound in home prices and the fact that i think -- because actually consumer sentiment is on the rise in the last couple of months. and i think a lot of that is that people are reading that home prices are getting better, they feel there's a turn in that market. and i think that's playing it, as well. the unemployment rate is still stubbornly high, but people don't feel all that bad and i think that's one of the reasons the stock market is doing well. >> the question is how many people are participating. >> front page article in the journal this morning is that despite the fact that we're sitting at a four year cycle high, we
of the clinton global initiative, the annual gathering of leaders and bold-faced names to address some of the globe's most challenging dilemmas. many in the developing world lack access to clean drinking water. ceo of the world's largest beverage company, coca cola, and the inventor of the segue let me in on their plans to quench that thirst. >> so many lives are lost every single day because of lack of access to clean drinking water. when you think of the numbers in the world today, maria, there are roughly one out of six people in the world today do not have access to clean drinking water. >> so this is enabling you to get that clean water to the people who don't have access to it? dean, how does it work? >> it works exactly like nature does. you know, you get the oceans are full of saltwater, but when it rains it rains clean water. because the energy of the son evaporates only the clean, pure water. puts it in the clouds, condenses, comes down as rain. distilled water. we built a small box that is so efficient at reclaiming all the energy after it centurily boils and distills the wa
given bill clinton's speech and given the bump in the polls and the right track/wrong track stuff has improved. people have sort of come around to thinking that maybe it was a tough four years for anyone. can romney ever make the case that it is still a really bad economy that we're under? this is the worst recession. can he make it without looking nasty? >> i think he's got to make it. i think he's got to get people to look down the road and see the train wreck that's coming. >> not the one we've already had. >> 1.1 trillion in deficits racking up every year. we can run about 200 and keep the debt of gdp constant. which means we have a $900 billion tax increase coming. there's only about $1 trillion of income taxes. these are enormous tax increases that have to come. the president has fought every spending cut that's come along. he has a little bit, $50 billion from seniors and obama care to pay for some of obama care, but the rest of it will have to be covered by cost reduction, which he's fought every step of the way for taxes. >> i wonder, howard, can you -- is it possible to win
for smoking a cigar? didn't jfk smoke? of course clinton, a very famous cigar smoker and all it implications there. and what about winston churchill, without his cigar, the icon wouldn't be quite the same. it's unfortunate that now you can't even smoke a cigar this public if you're a public figure. next you'll be saying the king of spain can't go elephant shooting. i don't know what the world's come to. >> should he go elephant shooting? >> probably not. >> no, he shouldn't, but he got caught doing that earlier this year. >> that's the point of the modern world. came back from a football match and the press wrote up the amount of money they spent on the lunch on his private jet. and the food bills and everything. you get called out for everything. >> yes. there was a story in the american newspapers yesterday about a new book about the presidential monarchy in america. and how many multiples of expense we spend on on our president in a year versus the british spending on their royal family. and i think it's quadruple. so it's a tough time in a period of austerity to be a public figure. >> no
: hi, jim. boo-yah to you. >> i'll be there this weekend. clinton hill is coming back. go ahead. >> caller: we love you, jim. you do so much for us. >> thank you. >> caller: i want to know if i'm diversified. my first stock is target, second is sirius xm, third is clorox, fourth is disney and last is johnson & johnson. >> all right. let me go to work. the classic final station, 26 can't be beaten. sirius is entertainment. disney -- let's call it radio. that would conflict with disney. that's true entertainment. johnson & johnson, pharma. target one of the best retailers in the world. and clorox -- too much like johnson & johnson. this is tough. we are going to get rid of clorox and bring a little industrial in there. why don't we put in, yes, i don't mind saying it, ge, since it's one of the biggest positions in -- or you can do 3m. let's go to sandy in ohio. >> caller: boo-yah to you. calling to see if i am diversified. >> okay. >> caller: i've stocks are emc, procter & gamble, bristol-myers, conagra and votofone. >> high-yielding telco from europe. bristol-myers. conagra, what
hillary clinton says that the iranian government is to blame for the crash of that nation's currency, which has been plunging from economic sanctions over its nuclear program. that's sparking clashes in the streets of tehran right now where citizens are blaming iran's president mahmoud ahmadinejad, for the currency free fall. here are the details. >> iran's currency down 40% in a week, leading to those propests today in the grand bazaar. it's incredibly difficult to manage a business when the currency is shifting so rapidly in such a short period of time. riot police shut down the protest, also shut down the illegal, yet long tolerated, money changers in tehran. in january of 2011, one u.s. dollar cost 10,000 iranian rials. yesterday, 35,500. big change for one week. the tough economic sanctions mean almost no bank in the world will do business with iran. hence, the country can't sell its oil because no one will handle the transaction. it's led to an extreme shortage of dollars. sanctions also manke it difficut to import goods. they're in short supply. both those situations lead to m
. but second -- >> it reminded me of hillary clinton four years ago. i had forgotten that i thought hillary clinton won in all those debates. i picked up a lot of the same mannerisms and that was before he was in the office. and could say i'm not used to -- >> he apparently kicked john kerry's butt in all the preparation. well, i've got a plan-apparently he just wasted him. they had high expectations because he kicked john kerry's -- the other thing, john, i read a couple places that it was a drag preparing for this. the next between weeks are going to be -- when's the next debate? >> vice presidential debate is next thursday. and two weeks from now the presidential. >> next two weeks will be a complete drag. >> but one other point about the substance. because we still don't know how swing voters, the people who are still -- how they view the two side by side. it is possible in a country as polarized as ours to really get your side going and think you really kicked the other guy's behind and find that it doesn't move the needle all that much. and we have to see that. but the other thing was
clinton, then george w. bush, then barack obama. the fundamental decisions that businesses make particularly domestic businesses are driven really by what's going on with the consumer. and i think the only thing that would worry me is if i really believed that romney and ryan were going to get elected and they were going to come in and dramatically cut government spending, that would lead to a recession, and that would worry me. but i don't think they're going to get elected, but more importantly, i don't think they would do that if they did get elected. nears no republican that ever has. i think ceos are focused on what the consumer is doing, what are their customers doing. and as jim cramer said a little earlier, i think between 23 and 27 minutes of the world's focus was on this last night. the people have moved on to more substantive topics now. >> so the bottom line is that it does not matter for a domestic business who gets elected? when it comes to the fundamental -- >> i think it does matter, but i think it matters because i think barack obama is the person who is most li
, but it was the greatest spectacle. i was on the edge of my seat. michael jordan was there. clinton called in. >> george bush was sitting next to michael jordan or near michael jordan. >> and 41 was there, too. >> yeah, my favorite was the tweet. they said, whatever, europe, go solve your debt crisis. >> yeah. >> that's kind of the sentiment. >> jack had talked earlier about the only thing that could get him away from football would have been the ryder cup. he saw probably every swing, too. >> i've had experiences myself with puts and stuff. and heart democratic break. so you have to feel like -- >> watching the reaction from both teams towards the end, they caught a couple in the "wall street journal." >> phil -- >> was that saturday? >> no, this was 17 after he would have -- justin rose hit that long put. phil can chip from behind the green on 17 and that would have won. that was -- >> tiger had one that almost went in. >> so that wasn't heartbreak there, he didn't know justin rose was going to hit a 30 footer and then win 18 either. what happened in homeland? explain to our viewers what it is. >> you
